This week my teaser lines come from Susan Hill's The Mist in the Mirror, a novel inspired by classic ghost tales. In this snippet (from Chapter 5/Loc.835), the main character is beginning to realize there really is a ghost following him around London:
He stood, pale, ragged, utterly still in the circle of lamplight and as I stared directly at him he raised his head, turned his face up to me, his eyes seeking mine out. And so we stayed, as if frozen in some other time and place, I, James Monmouth, in the dark, upper room of the house, and the ghost of the boy in the cold street below.This is one of the books I'm reading for RIP/9, and so far I'm loving it.
